Unlike other AWD systems, IDD is able to predict traction loss instead of simply reacting to it. The moment it does, the system pre-emptively shifts torque to the wheels that have better greater grip for uninterrupted driving enjoyment.
Jaguar has developed an additional technology that runs alongside its IDD system. Adaptive Surface Response is designed to distinguish between different low traction surfaces, like mud, ice, gravel, and snow and delivers the ideal torque split for the conditions. Jaguar’s AWD saloons, the XF and XE automatically switch between two program modes for different surfaces, while its AWD SUV, the F‑PACE has a third for optimising traction in deep snow or deep gravel. Whatever the surface, Adaptive Surface Response will work out the best way to keep you going.
Jaguar’s AWD with IDD has been engineered to be the best AWD system for a performance car, perpetually adjusting to give you the optimum balance of grip and performance. It’s lightweight, low maintenance technology gives you the efficiency of a rear wheel drive under normal conditions and the stability of all wheel drive when needed. Its ability to predict and pre-empt traction loss means it can keep performance as its priority. Something Jaguars have always done.
